Joint Education Standards Help GI & Hepatology Training Programs Meet Accreditation Requirements
A team of representatives from five gastroenterology and hepatology societies have created a toolbox designed to help gastroenterology training directors meet the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) Internal Medicine Subspecialty Reporting Milestones requirements while training fellows to independently care for patients. Thirteen core tasks, known as "entrustable professional activities," or EPAs, have been identified that define the work of gastroenterologists and hepatologists. A toolbox for each task includes, among other things, specific behavioral objectives related to knowledge, skills and attitudes; identification of the key reporting milestones needed to achieve mastery; and suggested assessments to gauge progress.
The project was developed in response to the new twice-yearly reporting milestones requirement - a key component of the Next Accreditation System. This new outcomes-based accreditation system for graduate medical education programs takes affect for gastroenterology on July 1, 2014. Submission of the first reporting milestones report for GI fellowship training programs are due to ACGME between November and Dec. 31, 2014.
This toolbox is the creation of the Oversight Working Network (OWN), which is a committee made up of representatives from the AGA Institute, the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD), the American College of Gastroenterology (ACG), the American Neurogastroenterology and Motility Society (ANMS) and the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE), receiving support from colleagues from the North American Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (NASPGHAN) and the GI Program Directors Caucus.
The white paper describing the project and approach, which was generated by the OWN Committee will be on our journal¿s website and the toolbox will be the OWN website: www.ownyourfellowship.org.

Research Grant Opportunities
ANMS is accepting applications for the 2013 Small Grants Program. The Research
Program will provide 2 grants of $30,000 each. The program will fund research projects
focused on any topic area relevant to neurogastroenterology and motility. It is anticipated
that one award will be made to a clinical/translational investigator and one award will
be made to a basic science investigator. Applicants must be members of the ANMS. The
application deadline is November 11, 2013 by 11:59 pm EST. Funds will be available to
successful applicants in February 2014. Click here for more information and to submit your

Patient Education Brochures
The Clinical Practice and Education Committees have developed over 12 patient education brochures on common topics such as constipation, gastroparesis, GERD, IBS, etc and on common procedures such as esophageal/anorectal manometry, pH testing or biofeedback therapy that will be extremely beneficial to patients. Given that there is misinformation and poor understanding of these conditions, and very little authoritative information on these topics or procedures, these brochures should fill a much-needed void for our patients. They can be purchased for a nominal fee. To view the topics and place your order go to the Brochure / Handout Order Form.
